1: Dear Expectant Parents, We do not have the words to express the gratitude we have for you. Thank you for choosing life for your child. The strength and selflessness you are demonstrating are truly admirable. We are praying for God's peace, wisdom and many blessings to you during your adoption journey. We pray that he will give you strength and comfort over the next months and years. Thank you for taking the time to learn about our family. While we love being parents to our two sons, we are so excited to add to our family through adoption! We hope that by learning about us and our family, you would get a glimpse of the unconditional love, joy, security, and care we would lavish upon your child.

19: We would like to thank you for taking the time to learn about our family. We know that our story may be different than some because we have been blessed with two children already. However, we cannot wait to expand our family through adoption! Some of our close friends were adopted as infants and so we have seen the blessing adoption is both to the child and to the adoptive family! We pray that any child brought into our home will know how much we desire to have them, to raise them and to love them unconditionally. If by learning about us you have found that we are the right family for your precious child, we commit to offer many great opportunities to him or her. We pray that becoming part of our family would be a huge gift to your child as well and shape them into who God would have them be. Thank you for making such a courageous choice!
